DISCLAIMER: I do not own "James Cameron's Avatar"

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Here we are at what I think is the funnest chapter ever :D! First, I'll explain the brief history behind the names, then we'll jump into the songs.


Names are listed in order of appearance

OMATICAYA

Omaticaya names really have no origin, but simply come from the deep recesses of my head. Taka, Kana, and Sayla were names that I thought really fitted with the attitudes of the characters, and they have a bit of a rhyme to it, making the fact that they are sisters more apparent. Lock'tu and Nkti were good strong male sounding names that also really stuck well with the characters. All other Omaticaya names are left over from the movie, I'm afraid.

-888-

TXEP MENARI

Txep Menari names are really unusual because they either have origins in Hindu, Sanskirt, or Indian. I really wanted this clan to have names that were utterly different from the mainland clans, showing just how exotic they are. I believe all of the meanings really go well with the characters. Besides Dhanya, of course, but that was just ironic.

Atraiu: origin - Hindu; meaning - Great Warrior

Dhanya: origin - Sanskirt; meaning - Virtuous

Dhawal: origin - Sanskirt; meaning - Pure White

Abhishri: origin - Sanskirt; meaning - Fearless Beauty

Abhaya: origin - Sanskirt/Indian; meaning - Without Fear

Aakesh: origin - Sanskirt/Indian; meaning - Lord of the Sky

-888-

EASTERN SEA 'OLO

Eastern Sea clan has Native American origins because I think that this clan has a spirit that is very vibrant and spiritual like the Native Americans.

Ayunli: origin - Native American; meaning - Leader of the Dance

Paytah: origin - Native American; meaning - Fire

Anaba: origin - Native American; meaning - Returns from War

Howahkan: origin - Native American; meaning - Of the Mysterious Voice

Orenda: origin - Native American; meaning - Supernatural Power

Onawa: origin - Native American; meaning - Wide Awake

-888-

SOUTHERN PLAINS 'OLO

Southern Plains clan has names with African origins because mainly of their location and their lifestyle. They have a very strong, prideful identity which is also very earthy and spiritual, much like the people of Africa.

Ebere: origin - African; meaning - Mercy

Ama: origin - African; meaning - Water

Gimbya: origin - African; meaning - Princess

Kaweria: origin - African; meaning - One Who Loves

Zuka: origin - African; meaning - Money (yeah, didn't really pay much attention to meanings on this one)

-888-

WESTERN MOUNTAIN 'OLO

The Western Mountain clan names are names that really fit the location - up in the mountains, in the cold, isolated. Also the Inuit culture is a culture - like the Native American and African cultures - that is very spiritual and connected to the earth, so it really ties the essence of all of the mainland clans together.

Siku: origin - Inuit; meaning - Ice

Shila: origin - Inuit; meaning - Fire

Tatkret: origin - Inuit; meaning - Moon

Qaniit: origin - Inuit; meaning - Falling Snow

Aningan: origin - Inuit; meaning - God of the Moon


SONG THEMES

"PROPHECY FULFILLED" THEME

"Freedom" by Wynonna Judd

Every dawn becomes a new day.

A time to love a time to cry.

Every river knows it's own way,

And it's the same for you and I.

Every heart must have a reason:

A winding road, a midnight flight.

Freedom, freedom!

What we all need,

Is freedom in our hearts.

Freedom, freedom!

What we all need,

Is freedom in our hearts.

We fight and die defending honor.

The pride and prejudice we hide.

A mother's tears,

A father's anger.

From trying to stop the pain and lies.

So we pretend to look for answers.

I blame you, and you blame me.

All we really need is,

Freedom, freedom!

What all we need is,

Freedom in our hearts.

Freedom, freedom!

What we all need is,

Freedom in our hearts.

We don't need the pain anymore,

To move our mountains, to reach our shores.

What I've found is the choice I bring.

What I can do to let freedom go ahead!

Freedom, freedom!

What we all need is,

Freedom in our hearts.

Freedom from the darkness.

Freedom from the violence.

Freedom from the hate.

Freedom from the the fear, Lord.

Freedom from the hunger.

Freedom from the forgiveness.

Freedom, freedom!

What we all need is,

Freedom in our hearts.

Freedom, freedom!

What we all need is freedom in our hearts.

Freedom from the pain and trouble.

Free from all my tears and struggles.

Nothing's standing in my way!

I've finally found that secret place,

Where I can make my troubled mind,

Somehow leave the past behind.

Everywhere it's plain to see,

That all we really need is,

Freedom!

Kana

"The World Ain't Slowin' Down" by Ellis Paul

I found you sitting on a suitcase crying.

Beneath my feet, I feel the rumble of a subway train.

I laugh out loud,

'Cause it's the one thing I haven't been tryin'.

The train came in breathless,

The passengers restless,

You said, "Baby, you'll never change."

You gotta get gone,

You gotta get going.

Hey, the world ain't slowin' down for no one.

It's a carnival calling out for you.

It sounds like a song.

It hits you like scripture.

You paint the picture,

From colors squeezed from your hand.

Weren't you the kid who just climbed on the merry-go-round?

Hey look,

The world ain't slowin' down.

The world ain't slowin' down.

Out on the sidewalk,

The pigeons do the moonwalk.

I'll be dancing like Fred Astaire.

The lampposts are rockin',

The whole town's talkin'

Like a fool in a barber's chair.

And I get the sensation,

The joy and frustration,

Like being caught by a drop of cold rain.

A freedom can numb you,

When there's no place to run to.

It feels just like novacane!

You gotta get gone,

You gotta get going.

Hey, the world ain't slowin' down for no one.

It's a carnival calling out to you.

It sounds like a song,

Hits you like scripture,

You paint the picture with colors squeezed from your hand.

Weren't you the kid,

Who just climbed on the merry-go-round?

Hey look,

The world ain't slowin' down.

You packed up all your handbags,

Thrown of the sandbags.

I let go, and you stepped free!

I didn't want to loose you.

You said you didn't choose to,

It's just how your karma came.

But thanks for the vision,

And the twenty-twenty wisdom.

It hit me like a south-bound train!

You gotta get gone,

You gotta get going.

Hey, the world ain't slowin' down for no one.

It's a carnival calling out to you.

Sounds like a song,

It hits you like scripture,

You paint the picture with colors squeezed from your hand.

Weren't you the kid,

Who just climbed on the merry-go-round?

Hey look,

The world ain't slowin' down.

It's a big blue world.

Ridin' on a big blue world!

Taka

"Strength, Courage & Wisdom" by India arie

Inside my head there lives a dream,

That I wanna see in the sun.

Behind my eyes there lives in me,

That I've been hiding for much too long.

'Cause I've been too afraid to let it show,

'Cause I'm scared of the judgement that may follow.

Always puttin' off my living for tomorrow.

It's time to step out on faith.

I gotta show my face.

It's been elusive for so long.

Freedom is mine today!

Gotta step out on faith.

It's time to show my face.

Procrastination has me down.

Look what I have found,

I've found,

Strength, courage, and wisdom.

It's been inside of me all along.

Strength, courage, and wisdom.

Inside of me.

Behind my pride there is a me,

That knows humility.

Inside my voice there is a soul,

And in my soul there is a voice.

But I've been,

Too afraid to make a choice,

'Cause I'm scared of the things that I might be missing.

Running too fast to stop and listen.

It's time to step out on faith.

I gotta show my face.

It's been elusive for so long,

Freedom is mine today!

Step out on faith,

It's time to show my face.

Procrastination has me down.

Look what I have found!

I've found,

Strength, courage, and wisdom.

It's been inside of me all along.

Strength, courage, and wisdom.

Inside of me.

I close my eyes,

And I think of all the things that I want to see.

'Cause I know now that I've opened up my heart.

Anything I want,

Can be.

So let it be...

Sayla

"Book of Days" by Enya

One day,

One night,

One moment.

My dreams could be tomorrow.

One step,

One fall,

One falter.

East or west over earth or by ocean.

One way to be my journey,

This way could be,

My book of days.

No day,

No night,

No moment,

Can hold me back from trying.

One flag,

One fall,

One falter.

I'll find my day, maybe,

Far and Away.

Far and Away.

One day,

One night,

One moment.

With a dream to believe in.

One step,

One fall,

One falter.

Find a new earth across a wide ocean.

This way became my journey.

This day ends together,

Far and Away.

This day ends together,

Far and Away.

Dhawal

"There's No Tomorrow" by Elton John and Leon Russell

There's no time for waiting.

No future to see.

Inside the next moment,

Nothing might be.

The answer's not certain.

No time to decide.

Is this the last curtain?

There's no place to hide.

There's no tomorrow.

There's no tomorrow.

There's no tomorrow.

There's only today.

We all know the story,

We've heard it before.

We end up no question outside of death's door.

There's no easy answer to the question at hand.

So easy to ask,

And not understand.

There's no tomorrow.

There's no tomorrow.

There's no tomorrow.

There's only today...

Dhawal 2

"The Mirror-Blue Night" from Spring Awakening

Flip on a switch and everything's fine.

No more lips,

No more tongue.

No more ears,

No more eyes.

The naked blue angel who peers through the blinds.

Disappears in the gloom of the mirror blue night.

But there's nowhere to hide,

From these bones,

From my mind.

It's broken inside,

I'm a man and a child.

I'm at home with a ghost who got left in the cold.

And knocks at my peace with no keys to my soul.

And the whisper of fear,

The chill up the spine.

Will steal away, too, with the flick of a light.

The minute you do it,

With fingers so blind,

You lose every bit of the blue from your mind.

But there's nowhere to hide,

From the ghost in my mind.

It's cold in these bones of a man and a child.

And there's no one who knows.

There's no where to go.

There's no one to see who can see to my soul.

Jake's Song to His Daughters

"Forever Young" by Rod Stewart

May the good Lord be with you,

Down every road you roam.

And may sunshine and happiness,

Surround you when you're far from home.

And may you grow to be proud,

Dignified and true.

And do unto others as

You'd have done to you.

Be courageous and be brave.

And in my heart you'll always stay,

Forever young.

Forever young.

May good fortune be with you,

May your guiding light be strong.

Build a stairway to heaven

With a prince or a vagabond.

And may you never love in vain.

And in my heart you'll always remain,

Forever young.

Forever young.

Forever young.

And when you finally fly away,

I'll be hoping that I served you well.

For all the wisdom of a liftetime,

No one can ever tell.

But whatever road you choose,

I'm right behind you,

Win or lose.

Forever young.

Forever young.

Forever young.

Forever young.

Neytiri's Song to her Daughters

"If I Could" by Regina Belle

If I could,

I'd protect you from the saddness in your eyes.

Give you courage in a world of compromise.

Yes, I would,

If I could.

I would teach you all the things I've never learned.

And I'd help you cross the bridges that I've burned.

Yes, I would,

If I could.

I would try to shield your innocence from time.

But the part of life I gave you,

Isn't mine.

I'll watch you grow,

So I can let you go.

If I could,

I would help you make it through the hungry years.

But I know that I could never dry your tears.

But I would,

If I could.

If I could,

In a time and place where you don't wanna be.

You don't have to walk along this road with me.

My yesterday,

Won't have to be your way.

If I knew,

I'd try to change to world I brought you to.

Now there isn't much more that I can do.

But I would,

If I could.

If I could,

I would try to shield your innocence from time.

But the part of life I gave you,

Isn't mine.

I'll watch you grow,

So I can let you go.

If I could,

I'd help you make it through the hungry years.

But I know that I could never dry your tears.

But I would,

If I could.

If I could...

Atraiu's Song to Kana

"Without Question" by Elton John

The more I learn,

The more I see.

The less the world impassions me.

The hungry heart.

The roving eye.

Have come to rest, do not apply.

The frantic chase.

The crazy ride.

The thrill is gone,

I step aside.

And I'd believe in anything,

Were it not for you.

Showing me by just existing,

Only this it true.

I love you.

I love you!

Without question,

I love you.

The more I want,

The more I steal.

The more I hold,

The less is real.

All wordly things,

I follow blind.

In hope, not faith,

Was paid in kind.

The line is drawn,

The change is made.

I come to you,

I'm not afraid!

And I'd believe in anything,

Were it not for you.

Showing me, by just existing,

Only this is true.

I love you.

I love you!

Without question.

I love you.

Kana's Song to Atraiu

"Beautiful Surprise" by India arie

It's like yesterday,

I didn't even know your name.

Now today,

You're always on my mind.

I never could have predicted that I'd feel this way.

You are a beautiful surprise.

Intoxicated every time I hear your voice.

You've gotten me on a natural high.

It's almost like I didn't even have a choice.

You are a beautiful surprise.

Whatever it is that you came to teach me,

I am here to learn it.

'Cause I believe that we are written in the stars.

I don't know what the future holds,

But I'm living in the moment.

And I'm thankful for the man that you are.

You are,

Everything I ask for in my prayers.

So I know my angels brought you to my life.

Your energy is healing to my soul,

You are a beautiful surprise.

You are an inspiration to my life.

You are the reason why I smile.

You are,

A beautiful surprise.

Lock'tu's Song to Kana

"I Turn to You" by All-4-One

When I'm lost in the rain,

In your eyes I know I'll find the light to light my way.

And when I'm scared of losing ground.

When my world is going crazy,

You can turn it all around.

And when I'm down you're there pushing me to the top.

You're always there giving me all you got.

For a shield,

From the storm.

For a friend,

For a love to keep me safe and warm.

I turn to you,

For the strength to be strong.

For the will to carry on.

Or everything I do.

For everything that's true.

I turn to you.

When I lose the will to win.

I just reach for you,

And I can reach the sky again.

I can do anything.

'Cause your love is so amazing.

'Cause your love inspires me.

And when I need a friend,

You are always on my side.

Giving me faith,

Taking me through the night.

For a shield,

From the storm.

For a friend,

For a love to keep me safe and warm.

I turn to you,

For the strength to be strong.

For the will to carry on.

Or everything I do.

For everything that's true.

I turn to you.

For the arms to be my shelter through all the rain.

For truth that will never change.

For someone to lean on.

For the heart I can rely on through anything.

For that one who,

I can run to.

For a shield,

From the storm.

For a friend,

For a love to keep me safe and warm.

I turn to you,

For the strength to be strong.

For the will to carry on.

Or everything I do.

For everything's that true,

I turn to you.

Possible Other Song From Lock'tu to Kana

"In My Dreams" by Des'ree

(Some lyrics slightly changed for the sake of story ex. You were my Queen/ I was the captain of your sea)

When we were young,

We shared our dreams.

You were my Queen,

I was the captain of your sea.

We felt we were the only ones to see,

Mermaids combing their hair with coral brushes from the sea.

In my dreams,

You were food and wind.

In my dreams,

We had space and time.

In my dreams baby,

We could fly.

In my dreams,

You'll never die.

Sweet, sweet music.

We made our own.

The tree in our garden was our surrogate home.

We drank lemonade and ate mud pies.

We owned the land.

Oh yes, we owned the sky.

In my dreams,

You were food and wine.

In my dreams,

We had space and time.

In my dreams baby,

We could fly.

In my dreams,

You'll never die.

Can you believe,

Every secret I had I shared with you.

Yes, with you.

Always, always, in our games I took the blame for you.

Yes, for you.

In my dreams,

You were food and wine.

In my dreams,

We had space and time.

In my dreams baby,

We could fly.

In my dreams,

You'll never die...

Kana's Song to Lock'tu

"Complicated Melody" by India arie

If he were a color,

He'd be a deep dark forest green.

If he were a car,

He'd be a long stretch limousine with room for all of humanity inside.

'Cause he is so giving,

And he is so wise.

If he were a number,

He'd be a five 'cause he has such a brilliant mine.

If he were an animal,

He'd be an ass.

'Cause he's so stubborn sometimes.

But if he were a song,

He'd be a complicated melody,

That complicated fellow he...

I almost cannot sing it on key.

But he means the world to me.

If he were a building,

He'd be a beautiful cathedral.

'Cause he's so traditionally spiritual.

If he were a dance,

He'd be complicated like a tango.

Exotic like a mango.

But if he were a song,

He'd be a complicated melody.

That complicated fellow he...

I almost cannot sing it on key.

But he means the world to me.

He ain't the reason for the sun and the moon.

He is just the reason for this here tune.

'Cause he means the world to me.

He means the world to me.

Complicated melody,

That complicated fellow he,

He's a complicated melody.

I almost cannot sing it on key.

Sayla and Paytah's Song

"If I Never Knew You (End Title)" by Jon Secade and Shanice from Pocahontas

(This is sung as a duet, so the male's part is in italics, the woman's is bold italics, and together is no italics.)

If I never knew you,

If I never felt this love.

I would have no inkling of how precious life can be.

And if I never held you,

I would never have a clue.

How at last I'd find in you the missing part of me.

In this world so full of fear,

Full of rage and lies.

I can see the truth so clear in your eyes,

So, dry your eyes.

And I'm so grateful to you.

I'd have lived my whole life through.

Lost forever,

If I never knew you.

If I never knew you,

I'd be safe but half as real.

Never knowing that I could feel,

A love so strong and true.

I'm so grateful to you.

I'd have live my whole life through.

Lost forever,

If I never knew you.

I thought our love would be so beautiful.

Somehow we'd make the whole world right.

I never knew that fear and hate could be strong,

All they leave us were these whispers in that night.

But still, my heart is saying,

We were right.

If I never knew you,

There's no moment I regret,

If I never knew your love.

Sine the moment that we met,

I would have no inkling of,

If our time has gone at last,

How precious life can be.

I've lived at last.

I thought our love would be so beautiful.

Somehow we'd make the whole world right.

I thought our love would be so beautiful.

We'd turn the darkness into light.

And still my heart is saying,

We were right.

For, if I never knew you,

If I never knew you...

I'd have lived my whole life through.

Empty as the sky.

Never knowing why.

Lost forever.

If I never knew you.


AN: There you go! I know you're wondering about some of the characters who I didn't give personal songs (Lock'tu, Dhanya, Atraiu) so let me explain myself. Lock'tu and Dhanya I didn't give songs simply because I could not find one in my music library that fit their complex character traits. If you guys have any suggestions for their songs, please let me know, and I'll add them on to the chapter. I do have a song for Atraiu, but I couldn't find any exact lyrics for it, so I didn't post it. If you'd like to hear it, it is called "Didn't I Tell You" by Joyce Kennedy, from the Breakfast Club soundtrack, and you can listen to it on YouTube. Thanks guys, again, and please review!
